Currently there is an option enable or disable auto-play on the Roku Plex app.
- Autoplay = Plays continuously forever until you physically press stop.
- No Autoplay = Plays one video, then stops.
I would like a third option:
- Smart Autoplay = Plays continuously, then stops if there's no user input for a period of time (e.g. no buttons pressed in 2 hours).
Netflix's Roku app has this feature and it works great. I like to turn shows/movies on when I go to bed. If I have autoplay turned on, it continues playing until I wake up. If I shut autoplay off, I have to grab the remote every 20 minutes to change to a new episode. Not fun when you're trying to sleep.
Not even sure if Plex reads these boards, and they offer no method of contact outside media/partner relations. So.. whatever. If it gets seen it gets seen, if it doesn't it doesn't.
